Nancy Pelosi criticized Trump over his haste to get a deal with Kim Jong Un

President Trump got nothing more than “vague promises” from North Korean Leader Kim Jong Un that do not show a clear pathway to denuclearization as part of their deal Tuesday morning, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., said.
Pelosi said the president moved in “haste” to get a deal with Kim after announcing that the North Koreans will move on denuclearization, which Trump says will “go very quickly.”
“Nuclear nonproliferation is a pillar of America’s national security. We respect any serious and real diplomatic efforts to achieve that goal on the Korean peninsula,” Pelosi said in a statement hours after the agreement. “Apparently, the President handed Kim Jong-un concessions in exchange for vague promises that do not approach a clear and comprehensive pathway to denuclearization and non-proliferation.
“In his haste to reach an agreement, President Trump elevated North Korea to the level of the United States while preserving the regime’s status quo. The millions of families currently living in fear of nuclear weapons in the region deserve strong and smart leadership built on diplomacy and engagement with our regional partners and allies.”
The House Democratic leader also said the president’s actions at the G-7 summit in Quebec and “habitual disparaging” of U.S. allies hurts the prospects for peace.
“The President’s marginalization of the vast expertise of the State Department and his habitual disparaging of our allies as demonstrated at the G7 Forum hinders a lasting, stable pathway to peace,” Pelosi said.
